25-July 2  Avedon in Texas: Selections from In the American West at Amon Carter Museum of American Art. When renowned New York City fashion and portrait photographer Richard Avedon agreed in late 1978 to take on a commission from the Amon Carter to create a portrait of the American West through its people, he was filled with uncertainty about whether the project would succeed. The following spring, at Rattlesnake Round-Up in Sweetwater, Texas, he created evocative portraits that make it abundantly clear why In the American West has become a touchstone in photographic history. Admission free. Hrs. Tues., Wed., Fri., Sat. 10 a.m.-5 p.m., Thurs. 10 a.m.-8 p.m., Sun. noon-5 p.m. For more information, 817-738-1933, www.cartermuseum.org/exhibitions/avedon-in-texas-selections-from-in-the-american-west. 3501 Camp Bowie Blvd.
